It takes an adult to admit a mistake, and okay, I made one. I said something without thinking to a customer that wasn’t the customer’s business, and Katie let me know how angry she is. And still is. Katie and I after much discussion are going to sell the cafe. Wish us luck in selling it!
I am obviously quite miserable. I’ve spent so much time and money getting the place up to snuff, and one would think that it’s foolish to bail without giving it a chance, but Katie has indicated that she’s no longer interested and I know in my heart I cannot work six days a week for the next six months until I can give myself a break at Christmas. Maybe Chipper can work that hard for a season, but I know I can’t.
Miserable or not, I have to face facts, and they are plain and unequivocal. I’ll be meeting a potential buyer this afternoon. I googled the buyer and they already ran a bakery on the Sunshine Coast, so they won’t be starting from scratch like we did.
I had a lot of hope. Now I just have a lot of paperwork and a very heavy heart. When it’s done, and all wound up, I’ll start phase II of the ‘reinventing myself’ plan.
